Ah, it looks like your version of wx got linked with wxWidgets 2.9.3
instead of wxWidgets 2.8 . This introduces various issues, in particular
the ones you ran into.
If you just want to try a few examples with wxWidgets 2.9.3, you can
install reactive-banana-0.6.0.0 and the corresponding -wx packages from
the master branch at
This should work with wx-0.90 (though some examples crash), but I can't
give any guarantees whether the official 0.6 version that I'm going to
release on hackage will have the exact same API.
That said, I'm basically just waiting for Jeremy to release a small
patch to wx on hackage that fixes some of these issues (for instance the
strangely minimized text entries and the crashes). After that, I'm going
to release reactive-banana-0.6.0.0 that depends on wx-0.90.
